10/\ --June 13. 1976 Sunda* Gazette-Mail .·Charlfi'tn. Vieit V i ' l n - « ~ - - Mills Critical of Alcoholism Report Indicating No Danger in Drinking WASHINGTON' ( A P ) - R e p W i l b u r Mills, whose bout with alcoholism tost him his committee c h a i r m a n s h i p , has criticized a report that indicated some alcoholics could take up normal drinking patterns after being treated. "1 know enough about the illness to recognize the dangers to alcoholics of any encouragement based upon so-called scien- t i f i c research t h a t would lead them to believe that there is a permanent cure for alcoholism," he said in a statement issued by his office Saturday, The report, prepared by the Hand Corp.. said that after some alcoholics are treated, they can resume drinking alcohol with no more danger of a relapse than if they abstained. It was written by Dr. David Armor and was based on case histories and studies of people treated for alcoholism around the country. Mills resigned as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee a f t e r his well-publicized appearances with stripper Fanne Foxe in 1974 and underwent months of treatment for alcoholism in a private hospital. The Arkansas Democrat has been active in Alcoholics Anonymous, and has spoken publicly about alcohol abuse. He said in an interview that reports such as t h a t issued by Rand can be "disastrous" for alcoholics. Such reports, he said "are liable to have caused a lot of alcoholics to go back and take a drink." "Perhaps those that conducted the study are not as informed as they thought themselves to be and confused alcoholics with heavy drinkers without recognizing the difference," said Mills in his statement. "A heavy drinker's drinking . . . can be controlled but the only way alcoholism can be cured is through total abstinence." he said. "This has been proven time and time again by people who are alcoholics and attempt to drink again." ^r ^^P r · W '^a^r -^j^gr ^^fr w ^^K' ^W^ ^(^ ^^*^ ^UV vm' KANAWHA COUNTY SCHOOLS Benjamin Franklin Career Technical Education Center To Prepare For the Next 200 Years.
